National Education Association, Washington, DC. Committee on Educational Finance.
This report consists of 19 conference papers, most of which focus on the current problems, issues, and trends in educational finance; while several deal with cost effectiveness and levels of productivity. Since the concept of productivity focuses on outputs, other papers are concerned with the output-oriented concepts of accountability and performance contracting. Other topics covered include : (1) federal categorical aid and revenue sharing, (2) school budgeting, (3) the use of PPBS, (4) the role of the courts in assuring equal educational opportunity, (5) reforms of State and local tax systems, and (6) New Brunswick's (Canada) 100 percent provincial support system.
